America Has Sown the Seeds Of Its Own Demise

By: Dean Kalahar
In the aftermath of the election of 2012, a new reality must be digested by all Americans. Working within the precepts of a democratic republic, The American public freely exercised their choice and voted for a New America.
The electorates’ decision once and for all confirms a definition of America that values hopes, feelings and equality of results over the realities of human nature, history, and the foundational principles that hold western civilization together. There is now no doubt that the tipping point of geometrically increasing cultural decline has been crossed. America has now firmly changed from a nation where the founding principles of the great enlightenment have been substituted for a utopia of widespread human suffering. There is no going back.

This change is not due to one person or event. For fifty years we have seen systemic institutional decay to the vital institutions across our cultural landscape that sustains America. And like a canary in a mine providing an early warning signal to dangers, we have been warned time and time again that we were losing our footing and chose to ignore the obvious.

Today the foundational pillars of civilization that have sustained America have been voted insignificant and will be allowed to collapse. The result is a New America for sure, but it is not a greater America. It is an America that has sown the seeds of its own demise, blinded by self inflicted wounds, disguised by false compassion, and based on trust in a human condition that is not in our nature.

A callous society focused on self has been defining deviancy downward, as the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan warned us, for a long time. Sometimes covertly and other times overtly, a cultural war was being raged in America by a progressive “tolerance” movement that is intolerant of institutional traditions, principles, and laws that were created and tested over thousands of years of trial and error. Those who have lectured us have shown a condescending hypocrisy of moral relativism towards any concept that might interfere with their self-anointed sensibilities of creating a utopia so as to avoid self awareness. The walls of the republic have been crumbling for some time. Now the collapse is all but inevitable because, and let’s be clear, they have won.

America’s religious institution has been eroded by the secularization of society, the welfare state, the misguided belief in the separation of church and state, and attacks toward any outward expression of religious passion. The church has lost the culture war.
Our public education institution has been decimated by bureaucracies and unions that have failed to teach children how to read, write, or add, while choice, accountability, rigor, and our nation’s history have been forsaken for self esteem and multiculturalism. The schools have lost the culture war.

Our family institution has been redefined into a bizarre amalgam of gender, sexual, and parental proclivities. 40% of children are born out of wedlock and 25% of teenagers have a sexually transmitted disease. The overt-sexualization of our society has created confusion and despair among our children, while infanticide has become an all too easy choice. Biological and psychological realities for sanctioning marriage between a man and woman for the sake of our posterity have been ruthlessly attacked by those seeking to re-define the universal order. Our families have lost the culture war.

Free market entrepreneurial principles no longer guide our economic system. Efficiencies, life saving economic growth and opportunity based on the laws of human nature and scarcity have been forsaken by an ever encroaching government institution that believes a command and control approach of central planning can better answer the questions of what, how, and for whom. Our economic system has lost the culture war.

The winners of this battle have handed over America’s keys to the government. A government that no longer sees its role as providing for the steady rule of constitutional law and unwavering protection of the basis of morality found in the steadfast protection of personal property. The New America government will direct the collapses of what they deem are antiquated institutions of society like life, liberty, and property. They will smugly orchestrate the demise of the bedrock principles that sustained our family, education, religious, and economic institutions that have held us together and allowed us to thrive as a country; naively believing a nation can sustain itself after its foundations are removed.

Progressive ideology has destroyed the social fabric of the nation from within. Ignorance has sown the seeds of our own destruction. As the Romans did long ago, our fate will be written in the epilogue of history. Gone, a nation whose torch was smothered when a complacent arrogance forgot who they were, what made them great, and the humility to stand vigilant in defending liberty was lost.

There is no upside for America or its people; and it is going to get ugly out there. But for those who have been fighting the good fight for so long, honoring those who have died fighting for the same providential cause, my suggestion is to pull in, relax, live, and love your families.

Patriots, the New America is the reality; just have peace of mind knowing the winners of the war, and the choices they made, will be held personally responsible for the severe costs that are to follow. To those who asked for a New America, I leave you with the words of Col. Jessup in A Few Good men: “You have no idea how to defend a nation. All you did was weaken a country today … That’s all you did. You put people in danger. Sweet dreams, son.”

Treaties From Hell

BY BECKY FENGER
FEBRUARY 15, 2012

Now that Dick Morris has switched sides from his days with President Bill Clinton, it would behoove us to listen to a warning he is issuing about a handful of treaties President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are negotiating, or seeking to ratify, that would undermine America’s national interests permanently.

You may have heard of some of these beauties, as most are not new. You may not know, however, the speed with which they are being pushed while Republicans are distracted with the Presidential nomination. Worse, if these treaties do get signed and ratified (which could well happen in a Democrat-controlled Senate), Morris points out they will have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered by Congress or trumped by state legislatures. Their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts. Just what our U.S. courts need – more power!

The first is the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). Already signed, it requires that the U.S. give half of our royalties for off-shore oil and gas drilling to an international body of 160 countries that vote on which countries should get the money. How frightening is this? We have only one vote of the 160, and panting nations of the world are lined up for the spoils. Morris tells us Obama will push for its ratification, with the aid of Senator Richard Lugar (RINO, Ind.), after Lugar’s primary this fall. (That way the little rat can ratify with relative impunity.)

It also mandates us to share our offshore drilling technologies with other countries for free. What do we get in return? Zip.

The second is the International Criminal Court. It is a body set up by the nations of the world with international judges who would have the power to prosecute violators of not only genocide but also the new crime of “aggression.” Aggression is described as going to war without permission of the United Nations. American presidents and Cabinet members could be imprisoned, with Russia and China having veto power over U.S. actions. No wonder George W. Bush wanted to steer clear, but Hillary is barreling ahead. Some of you may think this sounds cool, but give it a little thought.

The third one is the Small Arms Treaty. This is basically a way to enact gun control without going through Congress by means of a global ban on the export of small arms. The ban applies only to private citizens. Consider: It’s the governments of the United States, China, Israel and Russia that are exporting 80 percent of the arms around the world, not the individual Tom and Harry (oh, yea, and ATF on order of the Justice Department). An international treaty that deals with the governments moving arms instead of the individuals involved is goofy.

Now the entire world will know if I have a gun. What’s more, all my ammunition must be registered. Gun grabbers are drooling.

The fourth one is the Rights of the Child Treaty to be run by a 14-member court. It’s an effort to dictate that a code of rights for children is going to be locked into an international covenant. It’s meant to fight child prostitution, kidnapping and trafficking. But it could also impose rules in how to deal with children, where they may be educated, what religious instruction they should receive, or what discipline they should get, says Morris.

We already have the constitution and child protection laws. With the “gentle snowflake” treatment we give our kids, soon we’ll need protection for the parents. (Already my friends aren’t allowed to see the grades of their child in college without his permission!) Hillary wrote that “It Takes a Village.” I guess her sequel will be, “It Takes an International Treaty.”

These are all power grabs by the international bureaucracy at the United Nations. The rest of the world, a vast majority with hatred for us, sees this as a perfect opportunity to cripple Uncle Sam while Obama and Hillary are in charge.

Watch for Morris’ book, “Screwed! How the United States is Getting Screwed and What the Next President Must Do to Stop It,” which debuts on May 8, for even more atrocities from the Obama administration and how our own business and political leaders are pushing for globalism with all its negative economic and environmental consequences. And weep.
